Best Things to Do in Orlando in October with Kids: Halloween, Pumpkin Patches, Farm Fun

Families are in for a treat this October in Orlando with several fun, in-person events to enjoy. Fall festivities are in full swing and we've scoured the Orlando area for the best events happening this month for families and kids.

Central Florida's theme parks are festively decorated, and guests can experience events such as Epcot's Food and Wine Festival, SeaWorld's Halloween Spooktacular, or Legoland's Brick or Treat.  Set aside a weekend to navigate your way through one (or more) of the impressive Orlando area corn mazes, or snap some family photos at a local pumpkin patch.

Some of the best Halloween events are included here, but be sure to check out our full Halloween events guide for all holiday happenings this month. 

For those who prefer to stay home, there is a variety of virtual events on the October calendar.  Families can also enjoy socially distanced fun at drive-thru safarisdrive-in movie theaters, and Halloween drive-thru haunted attractions.

Our Back-to-School Fair continues; catch the last few free demo classes this week, including preschool soccerdining etiquette, and more.
